Look what a clean Sewing Cave can do

Last weekend I organized the Sewing cave. While I was going through the scraps this is what I made. I love making funky stars and a had a couple wonky houses so there you go. I had some black squares, different sizes and a couple different prints. I still used them in the stars they went together ok. The white sashing I had to bring out of the stash and still need to finish it. As you can see the strips are not yet sewn together.
I still need to figure out what color I want to border it with and how I'm going to quilt it. I want to try free motion quilting with my sewing machine. I have never done free motion on a project this large. I have quilted many 12" blocks that I made into raggy quilts.


Now on a different subject. My beloved ER ended last night. The retrospect they did before the show was more emotional then the show itself. I thought it was anti climatic, I was not impressed. I will miss my ER friends of 15 years.
Well it is spring. Rainy, windy, hale, then sunshine and rainbows. Still cold but this is spring. Front yards have turned green like over night.
OH YEAH! IT'S FRIDAY!!!!

  4. I like the wonky stars and houses, they came together for a really pretty quilt.
    I also watched the ER finally last night. Can't believe that I have watched the same show for 15 years. I expected to see an ending that gave me more closure than the show did last night. I wonder if Southland is going to be as good?

  6. Adorable quilt-love the wonky stars with the wonky houses-very happy looking quilt: it put a big smile on my face!

    Free motion quilting a large quilt is fun-it just takes patience and it gets easier once you get into a rhythm.

  8. I love the blocks, and also the nice white sashing (ideal open quilting spaces). I hope you will post another pic once it's quilted!
